August 8th, 2006

Spent most of yesterday morning sleeping. I was hoping it would cure me. We went out in the afternoon up to the wine country in the hills. There is a road that is followed through the vineyards that runs through villages. In the courtyards by the homes each family sells the wine from their land. I had started to write some of the village names, but there were so many of them. During the weekend these villages have traffic jams with people coming here to taste the different wines. We went up to a castle on top of the hill and ate Flame Cake (?) Which looked a little like pizza, but the crust is very thin, with cream cheese, onions, some ham and then cooked over flame quickly.

I think my cold is better, just yucky cough. I am again on a train, heading to Switzerland. Vince will pick me up in Gossau, near St.Gallen. He lives near the lake where the US actors hang out (Brad Pitt and such) cannot remember the name and not going to dig around in my bag for my "Europe for Dummies" book .I have mentioned him before he lives on a farm house and teaches high school students language. He is fluent in about 5 languages and can speak 10. He coudd join any conversation in Vienna. He will only have to bother with English today. Some of the others I have met will be arriving to his home this week. I will head to Paris Saturday. Not sure when- will have to look at the TRAIN schedule. Thought about flying to Paris, but everyone says they put you in a line without seat assignments and their is a long wait. Anyway not in the mood to find out yet, so will look for overnight train to Paris.

Love to all,
